3. Miami Marlins 2B Jazz Chisholm

Has there been no bigger spark on and off the field so far for the Miami Marlins? The big-time hits, electric base running, the endless swagger on and off field, and more, Jazz Chisholm is doing it all for the Marlins in 2021.

Chisholm currently owns a .289 batting average, along with a .352 OBP, .505 SLG, and an .857 OPS. As mentioned previously however, Chisholm is doing it all for the Marlins in 2021.

Jazz is getting on base at an incredible rate, and then making opponents pay on the base-paths as evident by his 8 stolen bases. He doesn’t just hit for contact however as Chisholm currently has 5 HRs on the season, ranking third on the team.

If you have any question as to just how good Chisholm is, and can be, well you shouldn’t. Jazz has all the abilities and potential to become baseball’s next young superstar on and off the field.

There is no denying that when looking for a specific player with a bigger impact on and off the field for the Marlins in 2021, it’s 100% Jazz.

So, we know about his impact so far, but where does this go from here?

Is Chisholm the early favorite to win the 2021 NL Rookie of the Year or someone else? That’s an argument for a different day, but there is one other Marlins rookie however that is arguably having an even better season than the Miami 23-year old 2B.

More on that later….
